Going for the money shot

Here is some more info about Youri taken from the PKRA website

Youri Zoon grew up in Holland and has been an extreme sports addict from a young age. BMX, Windsurfing, Motocross you name it, Youri has not just done it but pushed it to the limit. At age 13, Youri decided to focus exclusively on kiteboarding by joining the PKRA. 5 years ago he completed his debut year with an impressive 3rd place finish in 2006.

Mr. Zoon: Photo Nick Jacobsen

Being one of the most powerful riders on the circuit can bring with it misfortunes. In 2007 and 2008 he was seriously injured when he ripped his ACL twice and had to stop kiting for those seasons. He came back in 2009 more motivated than ever and became PKRA Vice World Champion for his first year back on the PKRA, putting a stop to any doubt held by others on his level.

Youri’s style is unique and it showed when he was one of the first to push for combos, doing one trick after an other and successfully managing four in a row at the start of his heats. His only wish is compete against Kevin Langeree, recovering from an ACL injury, and Aaron Hadlow retired for now, back on tour to prove that he’s the best kiteboarder out there.




Cape Town Session with Youri Zoon, Kevin Langeree and Nick Jacobsen

Big Bay Freeride Session With 3 of the best kiters in the world

If anyone was at Kiting at Big Bay, Cape Town yesterday it was quite possible to confuse a free-riding session for a PKRA World final. With 2009 World champion, Kevin Langeree, 2011 World champ, Youri Zoon, and Nick Jacobsen (Danish Champion & The craziest mofo kiter in the world!) all shredding it to the max. We escaped the crowds and headed to Small Bay for some fun freeriding, I’ve had the privilege of riding with all 3 of these guys in locations all around the world, but when you put the 3 of them together, without any titles on the line, the energy and comradery on the water between these guys is unreal. Check it out for yourselves,
And Next time you find yourself moaning about our CT conditions, remember that the worlds finest choose Cape Town as their training grounds!
